According to treatment guidelines from the ACR and the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR), the primary target of RA treatment should be clinical remission, defined as the absence of signs and symptoms of significant inflammatory disease activity. For patients with long-standing disease, ACR and EULAR recommend low disease activity as an appropriate alternative measure."In recent years, we have been discussing the need for a broader approach to treatment —such as in addition to measuring disease activity, measuring structural changes and functional impairment —which may help physicians and patients mitigate further irreversible effects of the disease," said Dr. Edward Keystone, Professor of Medicine, University of Toronto, Canada. "This analysis evaluates whether or not this is a realistic treatment goal for RA patients, and sheds light on HUMIRA's potential to help patients simultaneously achieve all three key treatment goals. It also supports that the response rates are likely to be higher in patients diagnosed and treated earlier."
